“His power, his passion, is the fabric of America,” said Palin.
The endorsement comes just 12 days before the critical Iowa caucus, where Trump is in a dead heat with Sen. Ted Cruz.

The former Alaska governor has some experience running for the White House — she was pegged as presidential candidate John McCain’s VP in the 2008 election.
Also like Trump, Palin has been a reality TV star, appearing in Sarah Palin’s Alaska and Amazing America with Sarah Palin.
Trump and his tagline “You’re fired” got huge ratings on The Apprentice and spin-off Celebrity Apprentice.
More to come.
